Thread Name: Is this genuine folk dancing?
Subject: RE: Is this genuine folk dancing?
Mr Red == The propogator of the "mention-of-Hitler" law was actually called Godwin. I am pedantic about this, because my dear late first wife's maiden name happened to be Godwin [no relation], & she and her family suffered from being constantly rendered as Goodwin. Your Godwinson seems to be a further wrinkle! My own family (Myer) have always suffered similar abuse in form of Myers, a much more common form; or Mayer or Meyer...*

Sorry for drift; but those with such names will sympathise I am sure.


*Tho not consistent in the family worldwide. Louis B Mayer, the famous film-maker, was actually my paternal grandfather's first cousin...
